Universal State Formula

The Republic of Universal State Formula is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its digital currency, unlimited-speed roads, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.556 billion citizens of Universal State Formula are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City Prime. The average income tax rate is 97.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Universal State Formula economy, worth a remarkable 1,958 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 550,715 Standard Monetary Units, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,732,422 per year while the poor average 133,949, a ratio of 12.9 to 1.

Only clowns with PhDs from clown college can advise Leader on Universal State Formula's coulrophobia epidemic, prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries, Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, and the USFBI Channel Tunnel project is plagued by delays. Crime is totally unknown. Universal State Formula's national animal is the Leviathan, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Universal State Formula is ranked 23,325th in the world and 1,128th in The North Pacific for Most Eco-Friendly Governments, scoring 2,776.61 on the Dolphin Recycling Awareness Index.
